Cisco (CSCO) today launched the Cisco UC Gateway Services API, a Web-based application programming interface (API) that could play a direct role in helping organizations deal with voice fraud and other attacks. The API opens up the enterprise voice network edge to enable more voice services on the Cisco Integrated Services Router Generation 2 (ISR G2) router.
In an effort to detect and thwart malicious activity, The Cisco UC Gateway Services API gives customers and partners easy access to call information -- both signaling and media -- at the network edge. Once malicious activity is detected, the Cisco UC Gateway Services API allows applications to choose an action, such as call termination, call redirection or call forking (for recording).
The Cisco UC Gateway Services API is supported on the Cisco ISR G2 with the Cisco Unified Border Element (CUBE) for SIP trunks and Cisco TDM Gateways for TDM trunks, both of which provide voice connectivity to the service provider. Therefore, the services enabled by this API can be extended across all voice gateways no matter what technology the enterprise uses for voice connectivity.
